ProFootballTalk.com finally got around to writing about the Steelers' needs this draft. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/04/17/team-needs-pittsburgh-steelers/

Nothing really new here if you've been listening to the podcasts.

My thoughts-

OL- expect an OT and guard here, to replace Hills and Essex
DL- not as high of a priority as many would think. 48.2% of all plays last season involved 3 or more WR. The Steelers nickel package has only 2 DL usually two ends kicking inside. Expect a late pick on DT who will go to the practice squad. Hampton only played in 8 plays against the Bengals in one of their games.
CB- expect to see two picks in the top 4 rds. The Steelers need upgrades here.
RB- don't expect a pick before the 5th. The Steelers are looking for a 3rd down receiving back.
S- Don't be surprised if one is not drafted. The Steelers only brought one guy in for visits and he is projected as a FA signing.

They missed a few...
TE- pass catching could be anywhere from the 2nd to the 7th but expect the Steelers to take one.
WR- anywhere from the 3-7rd.
K/P- expect a kicker to come in and compete. Punter is not very good this draft, stick with ROBO-punter for one more year and then bring draft one with KO ability next year.
